    Not a lot of sales data on it. It was a great frame though, so no complaint there. It's going to be heavy with that fork and those wheels on it though. With it setup like that, I don't know if I could say it's a good budget FS, especially if they did a 180 - 200mm fork instead of the stock 130mm. The component selection leaves me scratching my head a bit. Do you know specifically the model and travel of the fork?

    The other issue is that is was sort of a bridge bike between older and modern geometry, which is fine but just something to keep in mind, it has a steeper headtube angle (on a normal fork) than most stuff that came even 1 or 2 years after it.

    I would say get something newer and for a new person something more toward trail and not ancient downhill---I suspect you would tire of this quickly and then be looking for something more suited and spending money again. That suspension will probably be total crap.

    That bike is very old and there is no market so it is worth what you give him---
